Before and After Care

Wilberforce offers extended care hours before and after school. We recognize the need of many families in our community for the option of having students stay at school, under the care and supervision of their teachers, for extended hours.

Before-School Care

Doors open every school day at 7:30am. Lower School students gather for supervised time in the MPR, with access to the library and other quiet play. Middle and Upper School students are able to prepare for the day prior to morning prayer. No fee is charged for this extra care before school.

After-School Care and Fees

Wilberforce provides supervised after-school care hours for all students until 6:00pm every school day. The schedule and billing structure for after-school care varies depending on grade and whether the student is also participating in after-school clubs or athletics as well.

After-school care charges are billed separately from tuition, and will be invoiced through RenWeb (similar to club and athletics fees).

Registration for pre-paid aftercare for the 2018 fall trimester is now available, using the form at the bottom of this page. If you would like to take advantage of the lump sum discounts by registering and pre-paying, please do so using this form. Drop-ins are also always welcome; please email the front office to let us know if your child will be staying for aftercare on a drop-in basis.

Lower School Homework Club & Extended Care

Lower School students have Homework Club available to them: a supervised time of reading, completing homework, and free play after homework is completed. Snacks will be provided.

You may pre-register your child for Homework Club on a per-trimester basis at the following lump sum rates:

Lower School students who sign up for after-school clubs may also stay for extended care until 6:00pm after clubs. You may pre-register your child for this extended care (from 4:30-6:00pm) on a per-trimester basis at the following rates:

5 days per week$660
4 days per week$576
3 days per week$468
2 days per week$336

Homework Club is primarily for students whose parents have signed them up in advance. However, drop-ins are welcome and will be billed on a day-to-day basis. The drop-in rate for care until 6pm is $30 per day; for care until 4:30pm, the drop-in rate is $15 per day. Please email the front office to let us know if your child will be staying for after-care on a drop-in basis.

In order to provide proper supervision of students after dismissal, any Lower School students who are not picked up by 3:15pm will be sent to Homework Club and the family will be billed at the rate of $5 every five minutes up to the 4:30 drop-in rate of $15. If your child remains in Homework Club after 4:45pm, you will be billed the extended care drop-in rate of an additional $15. Families who are late in picking up their children from the extended aftercare will be charged a late fee of $5 per every five minutes late past 6:00pm (on a per-family basis).

Middle/Upper School Study Hall

Middle and Upper School students have the option of staying after school for Study Hall, where they have access to their teachers and to extra math help. Study Hall is free of charge up until 4:45pm.

Middle and Upper School students staying for athletics or clubs after school may also stay for extended Study Hall from 4:45-6:00pm.

For Upper School students staying until 6pm, there is no additional charge.

For Middle School students who stay beyond 4:45pm, the following lump sum rates will apply on a per-trimester basis:

5 days per week$660
4 days per week$576
3 days per week$468
2 days per week$336
1 day per week$175

Study Hall is also available for students on a drop-in basis. For students who stay beyond 4:45pm, this drop-in rate is $15 per day.

In order to provide proper supervision of students after dismissal, any Middle School students who are not picked up from Study Hall by 5:00pm will be counted in the Extended Study Hall for the day and the family will be billed the drop-in rate of $15. Families who are late in picking up their children from the extended after-care will be charged a late fee of $5 per every five minutes late past 6pm (on a per-family basis).
